4/153 Jubilee Pump
Water pump and trough. Dated 1897 and built to commemorate the sixty year jubilee
of the reign of Queen Victoria. Local flint rubble with limestone ashlar detail.
The basin is shaped like a scallop shell and stands on a square section pedestal.
This is set in a round-headed niche with plain imposts and gabled roof. In front
are 2 waterholding steps which project forward in semi-circles. The pump is set
back from the road in a semi-circular recess; that is to say flint rubble quadrant
walls curve forward either side of the pump and these walls have a rusticated coping
and shelf at the base and each wall contains a segmental-headed alcove. At the back
of the niche, above the basin there is a limestone plaque with lead lettering which
reads: "Erected by voluntary subscription AD 1897 in commemoration of the completion
of the sixtieth year of the reign of Queen Victoria". Above the niche is another
plaque with the initials VR and dates 1837 and 1897.
